They gave us all wheat filled food after saying they understood celiac. When confronted with the mistake the worker said “you said celiac not gluten free.” Enough said. My mom was very sick as she took a bite before I noticed our food looked like wheat bread not gf. Not safe.

Update: It’s been forever now and they ACTED genuine towards the incident at first then literally ghosted us and acted like we didn’t exist. They didn’t even offer us a lousy gift card or any apologies. Terrible company, terrible people. I don’t think someone going into anaphylaxis could fix them without them first being sued for it. Not safe for any allergies.

One star for having a GF bun. The rest was a disaster. We were on the takeout side and could see the craziness of the kitchen. The cashier had no idea about GF, the fryer, or any questions we had. We asked to speak to a manager....and we got the most uninterested manager who just nodded and said “yup” to all my questions while backing away the whole time. My husband ordered hesitantly while I left and ordered GF BBQ for my son from another restaurant. When we got home we checked our bag and everything was wrong. We did have one burger with a GF bun. We had no onion rings that we had ordered, we had an additional 3 burgers that we didn’t order, and my “plant-based” burger was made of meat. Sigh. I was so excited to try this restaurant. We won’t be back.

They served us all wheat food even though our ticket stated allergies, celiac, gluten, dairy. When I said something to staff he laughed and stated you didn’t say you can’t have wheat. They were going to remake the food and I said no. They gave us back our money but management has yet to respond. It’s been approximately 5 months. I have reached out to Wahlburgers multiple times both via email and phone. An Admin called me that was it. They don’t take allergies seriously and they obviously don’t care.

Good for celiac, buns are untoasted and kind of dry but no cross contamination. Careful which sauces you add as some contain gluten.

I’ve eaten here so many times and never gotten sick. Most things on the menu can be made gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer so you can eat fries and tots. The bun is good (I think it’s Udi’s) and the staff seemed knowledgeable.

I’ve safely enjoyed GF fries and burger at the Hingham Shipyard location, but was definitely glutened at this Brookline Ave location. My server seemed knowledgeable and confirmed they had a dedicated GF fryer. Nevertheless, today I’m hurting.

I went here after reading all of the fabulous reviews.

However, I was told they do not have a dedicated fryer, so that eliminated about half the menu. This is critical for anyone who is Celiac. The server was not interested in helping us at all. My friend's order was completely wrong and was given attitude when she asked for it to be fixed. Maybe it was an off day, but I will not be back.

Food was great, including gf burger bun. Dedicated fryer was nice. The waitress we had didn't seem interested in doing anything more than necessary to help me with gf options, but the rest of the staff I talked with in passing were exceptionally polite, so I might have caught them at a bad time.

We had a wonderful blonde waitress today who understood and guided us through our gluten free meals. She made sure to accommodate my celiac vegetarian dairy free daughter too. All meals were freshly made.

We were all able to eat together on her way back to school. Thank you Wahlburgers for feeding us safely

Had a great experience here (and even met Paul Wahlburg!) - I got the BBQ Bacon Burger (no bbq sauce-not gfree) on a delicious gluten free bun with a side of tator tots (they only fry gluten free items in the fryer). Though it took a little while for our food to come out and it was on the pricier side, everything was delicious and I will definitely be back soon!

Went for the love of the Wahlbergs and burgers, left happy and full! Aside from being a cool place to go into and check out all the memorabilia on the wall, great tasting food! I usually do not order my burgers on a roll since gluten free rolls can be difficult, but was starting and tried this one. So glad I did, the roll was so soft and fluffy, I was in heaven! Burgers are delicious and so many options to choose from. Fries and tots are cooked in a dedicated fryer, so it was nice to share. We were there before a Red Sox game and it was incredibly busy, so sadly, our fries and tots were not cooked well enough, but still tasted good. Staff is very knowledgeable and aware of all the ins and out of gluten free!

My server "forgot" to put in that I asked for gluten free bread on my grilled cheese, and then it took 25 minutes for a new one, which was served on top of the same sweet potato tots that the original sandwich was on.

Food is okay. Safe. Nothing special. Expect to WAIT WAIT WAIT. Service takes forever. To go food and table service come out of same small kitchen. Don't expect to be in and out. 20 minutes on a non-game/event day for take out! Easily 45 on an event night!

When I mentioned that my child needed gluten free for a medical reason, the order taker asked it it was for celiac disease. Very knowledgeable about what was gluten free. The GF buns for the burgers and chicken sandwich are outstanding! Fries are GF and are also delicious.

Original review:

My go-to place for a GF burger. I love Jenn's Chicken Sandwich, the sandwich burger, and the fluffanutta! So delish. Their fries and usually seasoned yummiliciously, and their sweet potato tots are another one of my faves.

The past 2 times I visited, their food (fries, sweet potato tots, and sandwich burger) weren't as delicious/seasoned as other previous visits.

Update 4/17/16: Visited on 4/13/15, and the fries and burger were seasoned well and were tasty--the way I remember them being. This was even after a Fenway Park rush!

This time I had the OFD for the first time. It was good. Would I order it again? Yes.

I asked for window seating and they gave me an exclusive private corner of the restaurant where I was surrounded by a wall of floor to ceiling windows!

I'm a fan of any place where my celiac son can get french fries so admittedly I am biased but that being said, they have GREAT fries. The staff was super accommodating and took the celiac thing seriously (though the server did accidentally tell me the onion rings were GF- I knew better). the burgers and salad were really good. GF buns. For the non GF the onion rings are fantastic.

Was in Cleveland for a work event. Opened up this app to see that it was 3 blocks from my hotel and they had a dedicated GF fryer.

100% hit it on the head, too. Server was super knowledgeable, kitchen staff adhered; no reaction at all for me.

Selection may have been small, but what they had is safe for Celiacs and damn tasty.

Tater tots made me sick. Fries were cold, Cobb salad was not good. My husband compared his burger to Burger King. We had to ask for water multiple times before it got refilled. Very disappointed in this place.

This place indicated they had gluten free buns and toast, and that they had a dedicated fryer for the fries. When we went they were out of the gluten free buns, so we had to eat the burgers on gluten free toast. It tasted fine, but did not hold up well as a burger with all the toppings. I would suggest calling before to make sure they have the buns. My daughter and I both have Celiac, and we did not feel sick after eating here.

This place is absolutely delicious! They make sure to change their gloves and have a dedicated gluten-free fryer for French fries. I felt completely safe eating here and can’t wait to come back. They also make sure to take special care if you indicate it is an allergy.
